seemingly from cygwin at cygwin dot com, but really from some joe1assitly at gmail dot com.

I guess that someone has setup a program to monitor our list and send automated replies. A little googling

shows that it also appended recently on debian's lists.


The funniest thing is the request to top-post. The less funny thing is that might be a fishing attempt.


Please advise,

Please reply to the list, not to me directly.
